Bike to School Week

Bike to School Week is a week-long event across the UK to celebrate cycling to school and the huge benefits it brings. This year it takes place from 27 September to 1 October 2021. Find out how you can get involved.

In partnership with:

Bike to School Week is a great opportunity to promote the positive impact that an active lifestyle can have on pupils' wellbeing and health.

It's free, and there's no need to register.


Organised by ourselves and supported by the Bikeability Trust, Bike to School Week celebrates cycling to school and the benefits of travelling actively for children.

To support schools throughout Bike to School Week, there's a range of resources available. These include:

  • school posters
  • daily activities to be completed in class
  • a video guide with simple practices to check your bike is safe to ride.

These activities aim to inspire pupils to think about their journeys to school, understand the benefits of active travel, and consider the causes and effects of air pollution.

Bike to School Week 2021 takes place between 27 September and 1 October.

Teacher Resources

Last year we developed a new range of engaging activities for the classroom to be used during the five days of Bike to School Week.

Take a look at our free teacher resources for Bike to School Week 2020.

During the event, we encourage teachers to let parents know they are taking part.

We provide parents with a free 'Guide to walking, cycling and scooting to school' and run events and competitions to keep students, parents and teachers engaged.
